RESEARCH + RELATIONAL FACILITATION SERVICES
"The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge."
Thomas Berger, Author
Research + Facilitation are core features of all MODA’s services, and may also be scoped as individual services.
Research has been important to Nina’s architectural practice since college, when she wrote grant proposals and won a Fulbright to study architecture and urbanism in Vienna. Most recently, she initiated and won a grant from Gensler to lead and publish a 9-city international study of evolutions in museum audience engagement and the role of museums in their communities and cities with an eye to how this will inform the design of future museums. Her research spans social and technical topics, and includes a diverse range of modes including but not limited to facilitating roundtables to gather POV information and foster community dialogue, designing online surveys to gather quantitative data to forecast trends, creating benchmark reports for architectural project types, writing comparative design case studies, digesting highly technical scientific research to translate into a relatable pitch pamphlet for investors, and performing building envelope materials research. The research she has completed has generated clarity for her clients, and supported them in making informed decisions and getting enrollment in their endeavors.
